It’s a New Day

This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Every day is a new day. Every day brings a new sunrise, sunset, and 24 hours until the next day. Every day brings new opportunities, challenges, and choices. But some days feel newer than others don’t they? There are […]

What do you have to lose?

  Life is full of “in between”.  Ben and Jerry discovered a fortune could be built by putting the “in between” of life into an ice cream flavor.   Chocolate chip cookie dough is the “in between” of a list of ingredients and baked morsels of yumminess.    As a fiber artist, I loved the process […]

How do you decide?

What would you do if you saw a brick wall across your path?   Would you run straight into it to make sure it in fact was a brick wall that was trying to impede your progress and only then try to climb it, knock it down, or any number of things to get past it?  Would you, like my husband, analyze the wall, […]

Wake up!

If you want to change a culture, change it’s art.  Art that is created from a place of worship, a place of abiding in the Presence of the Lord sets a transaction in motion that we can’t even begin to understand.  Holy Spirit invades the work and it serves as a gateway for others to […]

In Between

In between.  Neither here nor there.  State of transition.  All apt descriptions for what many people experienced this week throughout the Midsouth as ice and snow disrupted plans, rearranged schedules, closed schools, businesses, and churches alike.  Prepared for one type of week, we found ourselves living a different type of week. In between.  Neither here […]

What’s in a Word?

Words fascinate, inspire, and transform. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with […]

Fish or Fowl?

Tessellate.  I woke up to that word running through my thoughts.  Really?  Tessellate?  Images of M.C. Escher’s work floated through my consciousness (or subconsciousness) as I pondered the meaning of the word.  “What are You trying to say to me Lord?”  So, before I began my daily journal entry, I went to the dictionary.  No help.

Finding Your Way

There is was!  Smack in the middle of the workshop I was teaching.  We were talking about tag lines. For weeks, I had been struggling to find the right words to express what the Lord had spoken to me when He asked me to shepherd His army of artistic warriors.  “I help artists to…”  I started.  An […]

Like the Eagles

I went walking the other day.  It was a morning full of frustration and battling discouragement.  I arrived at my usual track and spotted a hawk taking off from the trees.  “Stop and Watch” I heard the Lord whisper.  “I have something to show you.”  Hawks have always been a confirming sign of God’s Presence […]
